    Description

    1950's President Dwight D. Eisenhower Single Signed Baseball. A fine sportsman in his younger days, Ike's own athletic career was brought to a quick close during his tenure upon the Army football team when his leg was badly broken trying to take down future Hall of Famer Jim Thorpe of the Carlisle Indian School. He played the role of spectator, and quite possibly in the capacity of first-pitch thrower at a Washington Senators season opener, the day he applied his bold 8/10 blue ink signature across the side panel and sweet spot of this OAL (Cronin) ball. This is arguably the finest of the small supply of Ike singles known within the hobby, deriving from the collection of a major music entertainer. Presidential signed baseballs have become ever more popular (and pricey) over the past several years, and this example figures to be the highlight of any such collection. One could bid with a good amount of confidence that the value of this piece will rise steadily in the years to come. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
